This is not the square root of the close, it is the 4th root (the square root of the square root). You need to say


for it to be the square root.

Today this filter flags YHOO and FFIV. Before that, there have been 8 days where nothing has been flagged. In order to generate more hits I've tried to relax the requirements, by making it select on ROC(7) < -1.5 instead of the original -2. Also played with ROC(80) > 15 instead of 20. Neither garnered many more hits. Any thoughts?

Perhaps relaxing the longer term ROC might help. However, changing the filter parameters just to generate trades invalidates the results upon which the filter is based.

I systematically evaluated over 7000 combinations, and this was among the most profitable - but sure, go ahead and change it randomly. I'm sure you'll improve it.

I believe the basic idea behind this filter was to buy stocks in an uptrend that have pulled back recently.

Loosening the uptrend restrictions would require you to look at the chart and visually confirm that it is trending up.

And while you're there, I would make sure that the uptrend has not been broken..

I notice the system sometimes generates a pick and then a few days later generates the same pick again, usually at a lower price point (eg. YHOO and MYL). Given maximum number of positions held hasn't been reached and no exit trigger generated, would "doubling down" when the stock is picked the second time be the right thing to do if one is to follow the system completely?
